Oh How I Love A Good Cake

Make no mistake. I like cake. I like cake a lot. I mean, a real lot. Actually I love cake.

So as you can imagine how absolutely thrilled to bits I was when the wonderfully lovely folks at Baker Days sent me this fabulous cake in the post to cheer me up! Yes, actually in the post! Like, it popped through the letter box like a slightly over sized little square box. Very discreet packaging so you'd never guess that inside is a fabby dabby do cake! No need for it to be signed for or hauling myself off to the post office to collect it. It was just there waiting for me on the door mat when I got home.

Inside the box is a beautiful tin with 'Just For You' embossed across it. Open it up and there sits your beautiful cake. If you wanted to surprise someone, birthday, little treat etc this is just perfect as all cakes can be customised and they can literally put anything you want on it. I recently referred a friend to their site when he wanted to surprise his son on his birthday as he wouldn't be seeing him. I thought this was the perfect little surprise to have arrive in the post.

The cake itself is fresh baked and serves 4 nice little slices. Personally speaking I thought it was an added bonus that the cake itself was actually really nice and actually edible. I think I'd of just been really happy with it looking so pretty.

Pop over and take a look. They have some wonderful designs and you can also upload a photo to ad create your own design. For £15 I think it's money well spent to send to someone you care about. I really did appreciate mine.

And don't forget to tell them Yummy Mammy sent you.

Happy cake eating xx

What's It All About?

I was having a conversation the other day with another blogger about product reviews. Personally it doesn’t bother me but I know some bloggers are quite anti them. I think in theory as bloggers we all know that we aren’t ever going to get rich or make enough to give up the day jobs by allowing companies to send us freebies or giving them a small advert space for £20.

From a Yummy Mammy perspective I haven’t posted any on Yummy Mammy before because I didn’t think it sat well with what I normally post about. My readers go there to read about what bad boy I’ve got in tow, how much I hate Batman and my ongoing battles with Small Child, what drunken antics I got up to at the weekend and what clothing dilemmas I have. Plus my language can be slightly colourful at times so I doubt some very nice company trying to promote a product would appreciate that.

However that said, we are all more encouraged to buy a product if we know that a friend has tried and tested it first and liked it. And I like to think of my readers as friends, given they know so much about me, and given the responses I’ve had in the past over certain matters, they care. I get quite a lot of requests from companies and PR’s to do product reviews so I think, in my quest to find a distraction, it’s time to give it a whirl. But not mid post about some stupid bloke or when I’m having a bit of a rant or brain dump moment.

Instead I have set up another blog called Yummy Mammy Really Likes. Naturally it’s still a work in progress so don’t be too harsh on the judgement. What I won’t be doing is plugging something that is totally irrelevant to the Yummy Mammy theme, so PR types beware when sending me details of bog brushes or camping stoves. If it’s something that fits with what Yummy Mammy is all about then I’m happy to have a look, or if it’s something to give away to like minded readers, happy days. And if I feel the urge then I might even just write about what tv programme I’m hooked on at the moment (although my latest thing has been The Only Way is Essex) so don’t be expecting to read about educational documentaries.
